Muscle Pressure in the Flank Position
Muscle Pressure in the Flank Position
Using healthy volunteers, participants will lay on an operating room table in various positions employed during kidney surgery. Using a pressure sensor mat, we hope to determine which areas of the body are subject to higher pressures. Using padding devices (foam, gel, water mattress)which are currently used in the operating room will be employed and measurements will be taken to determine which padding material and configurations is optimal to reduce the pressure to those body parts at risk for excessive pressure subject during laparoscopic surgery.
